    With Marc-Andre Fleury struggling this season, Penguins captain Sidney Crosby takes up the cause for him, even though it differs from the head coach’s opinion.

    It can be rough being  a goalie in the NHL. Not only is everyone trying to fire pucks at you, but sometimes guys come crashing your net when doing so. Detroit’s Jimmy Howard experienced this first-hand last night when Phoenix’s Eric Belanger had his shot stopped and half the Coyotes team barreled through Howard as…

    Now with the Hockey Hall of Fame hoopla over and done with, the NHL gets back into more regular working order with a scintillating slate of seven games. Is that enough alliteration for you? All times listed are Eastern because that’s the way we lean. 7:00 pm Edmonton @ Carolina It’s crazy to think that…

    All right so there weren’t a lot of choices to be made for goal of the night, so when in doubt go for the overtime game-winning goal when there is one. Henrik Zetterberg’s tip-in of a Ruslan Salei shot past Coyotes goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov is good enough to be the top goal of the night.

    What do you do when there’s one game on the night? You get one game that goes to overtime with plenty of star power to go around.

    If you’re one to believe a semi-blind item by Larry Brooks of the New York Post, then you’ll believe that Islanders head coach Scott Gordon is on the hot seat. A seven-game losing streak can make that happen.

  15. Goal of the night: Cal Clutterbuck slams and stuns the Blue Jackets

    It’s rare when a grinder specialist like Cal Clutterbuck gets a chance to have goal of the night, but when he (and his magnificent Movember mustache) put his main skill of hitting opponents into the act to help score goals, we’re sold. Clutterbuck’s monster hit on Jakub Voracek helped loosen the Blue Jackets defense up…

    Seen Stamkos? We have, and it came when he was being stoned on a breakaway by Sharks goalie Antero Niittymaki. Steven Stamkos wasn’t shutout all night as he had a goal and an assist in a losing effort in the 5-2 Sharks victory over the Lightning.

    Yesterday we told you about Panthers GM Dale Tallon’s big ideas to implement an instant replay challenge system in the NHL and it’s getting some talk thanks to some recently iffy situations where replay wasn’t allowed.
